Totally Should've Book Tag!

I wanted to do a tag blog so I decided to do this one! I've seen it floating around booktube a lot recently so why not? This tag was created by the amazing emmmabooks

1. Totally should've gotten a sequel

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith. I LOVED this novel so much. I read it in pretty much 24 hours, basically the span of the book. I would love for this book the get a sequel to see where the ship ends up. Do they stay together? What happens? 

2. Totally should've had a spin off series

Maximum Ride by James Patterson. This series is one of my favorites of all time. But that doesn't mean it has it flaws and one of the big ones: what about the others experimented on at the school? Yeah, sure we see a lot of them again. But what about that one winged girl at the end of book one? She is never mentioned again. I would love a book about her and some of the other mutants too maybe. 
3. An author who totally should write more books

Rainbow Rowell because I love, love her books like Fangirl and Eleanor and Park. I love her writing style so much, she's one of my favorite authors. And wouldn't it be awesome if she wrote a series? I would die.
4. A character who totally should've ended up with someone else

**Contains Spoilers for the Throne of Glass series, under the cut. You have been warned. 




I know, I know, the series isn't over yet...no one's exactly 'ended' up with anybody. But with the way that things are going by Queen of Shadows it seems like Aelin is going to be with Rowan. I'm still holding out hope for Chaol or Dorain because I really, really don't ship Aelin and Rowan. For me it's like more of a parabatai thing between them. They don't need to be together to have a really close relationship. But hey, maybe she will end up with someone else because Aelin was pretty much endgame with Chaol in Crown of Midnight and we all know what happened after that.

5. Totally should've ended differently

More spoilers...yay! This time for Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan.


I think I speak for the majority of the fandom when I say this....that book was crap. Like what the hell was it even? It was not a series ender at all. House of Hades was far better then it. BoO totally should have ended differently. No Leo closure...really?? That needed to be changed. Percy never telling his mom that he was even like alive?? Ugh, there was more but it's been far too long since I've even thought of that book to remember.

6. Totally should've had a movie franchise


The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa. Omg, I love this series so much! It's one of my favorite of all times. I would LOVE for it to be turned into a movie franchise...that is if they do the movies correctly (Like 5th Wave...which was AMAZING). It would be awesome to see everyone in their roles as Megan and Ash and Puck. I would love it so much.
7. Totally should've had a TV show

Sort of a kidish one but...Warriors by Erin Hunter. Yes, the series about the cats. I think this would make a really great tv show! Animated, obviously. But I would be really cool and it already has a lot of fans that would support the idea (have you seen the fanbase for fanmade things on YouTube?).
8. Totally should've had only one point of view

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancy. Let me say one thing: I understand that having the multiple POVs is essential to the plot but let me explain. When I was reading this book and it switched from Cassie's POV to I think Ben's for the first time I was soooo confused until I realized it changed like four pages later. I mean at least put the name at the top of the page or something? I understand why there needs to be POVs but do it in a better manner Yancy, please. 
9. Totally should have a cover change

None??? I don't know. I looked at all the books I own and I couldn't find any that I would change the cover on. Maybe I'm just too nostalgic for original covers, I don't know. 
10. Totally should've kept the original covers

Confessions of a Murder Suspect Series by James Patterson. The Original cover was amazing! I loved it so much...the new covers...not really pretty? Plain?? Like why? It's like the Max Ride covers honestly. 

Original vs New

11. Totally should've stopped at book one

The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan. This series...ugh. I really hated it. I read the first book and couldn't finish the second one. I don't know what it was about this series that made me hate it so much. I actually really enjoyed the characters and Gods so it wasn't that. Personally (and I totally understand if you don't agree with me!) I believe that the series should have just like stopped  after the first book XD
